Senate Republicans are investigating whether backlogged U.S. employment regulators are using Craigslist ads to pursue cases against businesses that no outside party has brought to their attention. 

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) has asked the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) if the agency used classified advertisements site to solicit complaints, while the agency has 75,000 cases pending.

"The senator's office has not yet received a response from the EEOC," said an aide to Alexander, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) committee. 

The inquiry follows the appearance of a Craigslist ad posted earlier this year — with with an EEOC email address attached — asking for people to contact the agency if they were discriminated against by the Texas Roadhouse restaurant chain.

The chain — known for its line-dancing staff — is battling a 2011 EEOC suit alleging the company does not hire workers over 40.

Republicans such as Alexander and Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) have criticized EEOC officials for filing suits against businesses like Texas Roadhouse —despite no one filing any formal complaints against the businesses and the agency's backlog.

Even if the republicrats get the information they say they are "demanding", they will not do anything about it.  It just makes for poor sideshow.

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
